    I'll give him till this weekend to refund me. If not, then I will share his number.
    For info he sold me the lens for $200 only. So before we met I ask for confirmation about the lens glass condition and the price.

    always check and double check anything you buy from anyone and anywhere
    if you are not experienced then bring along a friend who knows

    btw daiso also sells analog hydrometers, i bought one to confirm the readings

    Sigh do try and contact the seller. If he refuses to help, please post his details here. Everyone and anyone has sob stories , but that doesn't give u the right to be a cheat.

    Update, sorry Lookman bro , hijack your thread a bit.
    I just checked the cheat who swindled me out of money back then , he's back on BnS. He had then sold me a fungus ridden lens and camera while stating mint condition and he's back now to sell a Nikon flash.

    I will be most glad to furnish SMS conversations , repair chits , images of the fungus ridden camera if anyone needs evidence.

    If he declined a refund. contact fatigue to check on the lens and whether it can be cleaned.
